Angel Leaven-Traditional Chinese Product Leads Global Alcoholic Beverage Technology Innovation

China is a country with a fermentation history spanning thousands of years. Evidence suggests that as early as 8000 years ago, the Chinese were already consuming distilled spirits. Throughout this long and illustrious history, China has developed unique brewing techniques on its ancient land, creating unparalleled Chinese liquor through distinctive process controls and fermentation principles.

The greatest characteristic of Chinese leaven is its ability to ferment various raw materials such as sorghum, wheat, corn, rice, sweet potatoes, and more. In addition, the major difference between the brewing of Chinese liquor and foreign liquors lies in the bilateral fermentation process used in Chinese liquor production. This means that the alcohol fermentation process takes place in conjunction with the decomposition and saccharification of the raw materials. These two processes occur simultaneously, whereas most other types of liquor in the world require the raw materials to be converted into sugars before undergoing fermentation, following a two-step process. From this perspective, we can refer to the fermentation method used for Chinese liquor as a one-step fermentation process.

Angel leaven (yellow label) is a crucial component in the one-step fermentation process. We have come to realize that this fermentation method employed in China can be applied to almost all other types of alcoholic beverages, including whisky, vodka, and even tequila. In fact, as long as your raw material consists of starch-based substances, you can undergo rapid one-step fermentation using brewing yeast. Brewing yeast simplifies the entire fermentation process, making it simple, stable, and highly efficient. Now, let us provide a brief introduction to this remarkable brewing yeast from China.

What is Angel Leaven:

Angel Leaven is a new biotechnological composite wine-koji made by mixing and packaging multiple enzyme systems and various active microbial preparations.

Application Scope of Angel Leaven:

It is suitable for distilling whiskey, vodka and Chinese Baijiu from rice, corn, sorghum, wheat, barley, cassava, potato and other starch materials by cooked or raw materials.

Characteristics of Angel Leaven:

Angel Leaven uses a variety of microorganisms and complex enzyme systems for saccharification and fermentation. Theoretically speaking, this new biotechnology composite starter can be scientifically selected and reasonably matched according to almost all the fermentation methods and characteristics. Therefore, the new biotechnology composite starter can theoretically adapt to all the starch materials that want to be fermented. The new biotechnological composite starter not only retains the characteristics of the traditional multi-strain and multi-enzyme saccharification and fermentation but also overcomes the problem of the traditional single yeast fermentation instability. It brings better fermentation quality and higher yield.

According to the desired fermentation method and characteristics, the Angel Leaven contains a certain amount of amylase, glucoamylase, alcohol yeast and other microbial active cells. It is through the synergistic effect of these multi-enzyme systems and a variety of active microbial preparations that the Angel Leaven accelerates the decomposition of materials, increases the nutritional components and flavor precursors of the fermentation system, promotes the process of saccharification and fermentation, thereby shortening the fermentation cycle, improving the yield of materials and improving the quality of the finished product.

As a leading company in the yeast industry, Angel Yeast has extensive experience and expertise in starter of Liquor-making. Their premium alcoholic beverage product, Angel Leaven, offers a rich and full-bodied flavor, affordability, versatility, and excellent results. Angel Leaven enables rapid and effective fermentation during high-gravity fermentation processes. It exhibits good adaptability to high sugar and high alcohol environments and can tolerate high levels of organic acids. Additionally, Angel Leaven provides rich nutritional components, offering comprehensive nutritional support to yeast. Angel is one of the pioneers in improving the alcohol fermentation technology, constantly developing new yeast products to enhance the sensory experience for consumers. By harnessing the sensory characteristics of leaven, Angel creates various solutions for existing brewing processes, enriching their flavors and fullness.

Furthermore, Angel has caught the attention of consumers with their company slogan, "Developing Yeast Biotechnology, Innovate for Healthy Life," and has engaged in in-depth discussions with global clients. The company plans to further enhance its international operational team, strengthen customer service, and continue expanding the international market through active communication with global industry experts.
